Default It's Really Hard to Play Without Offensive Tackles

This game isn't really very hard to figure out. The line is a pale shadow of what it was intended to be. On the plus side, the defense showed a bit of gumption in the second half, and the offense never gave up.

yeap

Clark is decent but struggles against elite/fast pass rushers

Kuper obviously doesn't have the mobility/strength like before

Yup. Missing one is one thing. Missing both? Just not gonna work against elite teams.

Manning has not had much of a pocket to step into. That is not on the tackles.

True, but nobody gives a shat about that excuse. I heard all about the colts db injuries. When it came down to it, their backups got the job done and our guys choked.

When it came down to it, we had an opportunity to win the game (or put ourselves in position to) and we fumbled on the goal line

Poor run blocking hurt us more than the poor pass blocking.
Awful showing from the OL but they have had too many injuries not to struggle. Normally beadles is the worst player and Today he was the best one out there.

It's a scheme thing as the guards were flaring out more to help as well, and we took a down grade at guard as well with Kuper in for Vazquez.
